SIX-year-old Samuel Eadie ran every day for a week to raise money for Oxford Hospitals Charity.

Samuel lives on Warmans Close in Wantage and spent last week running up and down the road with the aim of raising £100.

The Stockham Primary School pupil decided to jog for 10 minutes every day at 3pm for one week.

Neighbours came out to cheer him on as he ran, and helped him raise more than £300.

Ann Eadie, Samuel’s grandmother said: “He’s only six so he likes running around and likes to run fast.

“His idea came out of the blue. He said he wanted to do something to help. Originally, he was going to run around his garden, but that is not very big, so he ran up and down our road instead. Our neighbours came out and clapped him on every day at 3pm.”
